- 1: set a small blocksize (say 512 bytes) on systems where you have a limited amount of memory

- 2: set a big blocksize (say 256000) in order to speed up the transfer / use less CPU cycles; on very fast networks (e.g. LANs) this may result in a considerable speedup (I know 'cause I conducted these kind of tests in pyftpdlib:
